In the west, most people identify yoga as a set of physical postures, which brings countless benefits to the body and to breathing. But yoga is not limited to that. It is a complete educational method for life, which proposes practices of ethical values, mental virtues, physical postures and meditation, providing consistent elements for a person to build his life with more presence and quality.
It is a scientifically proven fact, that practice promotes balance and well-being at all levels, slows down aging and provides the natural development of human creativity.
Regular practice helps liberate tensions, both physically and mentally, and promotes calmness, balance, concentration and access to deeper energy reserves.
At an emotional level, the practice of yoga reduces emotional issues to its true dimension. It also develops the maturity to resolve matters in a serene manner and with minimal energy consumption.
Morally, it develops ethical and moral principles indispensable to the self-realization of being and the relationship with others, transmitting values such as patience and forgiveness.
Spiritually, this practice builds awareness of the body, feelings, the surrounding world and the needs of others. By fostering the interdependence between body, mind and spirit, yoga teaches to live the concept of “uniqueness”.
